Spring - when a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of Jelly Beans (not Jelly Bellies!)
Back in the day, Neiman-Marcus sold the best jelly beans. Two pounds-worth in a clear plastic tube. No black licorice, either.
Does anyone know where I can find some good, regular old jelly beans. Not the 57 flavors of Jelly Bellies. Not the giant beans sold in pouches at drug stores.
Fosselman's ice cream also sells gourmet candy. I am sure they have what you are not looking for (Jelly Belly) but I think they also have the traditional size/style jelly beans. Maybe call and ask.

How about Bristol Farms? I always see them with their specialty candies out for the holidays. Usually made from gourmet companies that aren't mainstream. They always have big holiday displays, but I'm not a jellybean person so I didn't look for them.
I would love to know this, too. My favorite spot for this was Stroh's on Abbot Kinney, but they don't carry them anymore. I love a good jelly bean.
